This weekend will one of celebration at our house.
Tomorrow we will join with other families to celebrate the 15th anniversary of our children's school. Ever since we moved to North Carolina back in 2002, our kids have been part of a little classical school. The school started 15 years ago with just Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades. As of this year, it's a full-fledged K-12 school. Our middle son will be a member of its second graduating class next year. It's still a little school, but it's a little school with a big heart.
And then on Sunday we'll participate in the first Sunday-morning worship service of a little church. We're helping to start a new church. We've been meeting for several months on Sunday evenings, and we've finally found a place to meet on Sunday mornings. So Sunday will be a big event for our little church.
These big events for two little organizations so close to our hearts have gotten me to thinking. And I think that perhaps I really like little things. Maybe that's the real description of a mother's job: lots and lots of little things to do, little jobs to accomplish, little tasks to perform.
But you know the old saying: "It's the little things that make a house a home." Thank God.
